Good afternoon and welcome back to another Christmas Card Challenge! This week we have an interesting color inspiration challenge for you…I’m loving these non-traditional palettes!
I’m realizing that it’s the beginning of November and I’m starting to panic about making sure that I have enough holiday cards in my stash…so I’ve definitely got mass-production in mind! 😉 Here’s what I created!
I decided to use the inspiration photo to create two sets of cards using each neutral color along with the teal shades! I used two different snowflakes sets, one is from the newest Stamp of Approval release and is a design from CASual Fridays stamps and the other one is the Crystal Flurries layered snowflake set from The Ton Stamps! I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant and small snowflakes with pigment inks and heat-embossed them with clear powder. Then I stamped the larger snowflakes with Hero Arts dye inks! A simple but striking one layer card…perfect for mass production!
I hope you’ll play along this week…we’d love for you to play along with the color challenge but really, the only rule is that you create a holiday card!

Love the non traditional colors. The snowflakes look like the ones in the SOA collection. Maybe I can case that card & do something similar. Thanks
